Counterpoint said that in the third quarter of 2021, global PC shipments increased for six consecutive quarters, reaching 84.2 million units. However, since the third quarter of 2020, PC shipments have achieved double-digit quarter-on-quarter growth for four consecutive quarters. The year-on-year growth of 9.3% in this quarter means that the growth momentum of PC shipments is slowing down.
HP’s quarter-on-quarter decline is mainly due to the slowdown of Chromebooks and component shortages. Dell achieved 30% year-on-year growth in the third quarter due to its relatively low base and its focus on commercial/high-end products. One of the greatest tech company Apple in the third quarter of 2021, Apple’s shipments increased by 11% year-on-year, thanks to M1 Mac replacement demand.
